@IncredibleLaser websockets, brotli and pycryptodomex are not direct dependencies of ytmdl which makes me wonder which package uses it and is missing it as a dependency.

I will make the change for bs4 even though I am not able to reproduce the bs4 issue locally.

This was the final list of dependencies I needed to get this to build in a clean chroot:


In short, as suggested by ratata I added brotli and changed beautifulsoup4 for bs4, plus I also had to add websockets and pycryptodomex. Plus be careful that your own python libs (e.g. itunespy) are built against the current version of python, otherwise the build will fail indicating that that particular package couldn't be found.

You need to add python-brotli as a dependency. You need to use add python-bs4 as a dependency, as python-beautifulsoup4 doesn't work (possibly due to a rename IDK). I managed to get python-ffmpeg working, and so I packaged it here ->

@deepjyoti30 Glad I was able to find it. Thanks for caring & fixing!

There is one more issue left (for me) which seems to be that python-spotipy is missing a dependency to python-redis (already commented on the package).

@ViToni Fixed the issue in the youtube-search-python package. Thanks for pointing it out!

ViToni commented on 2022-01-22 12:51 (UTC)

Indeed it seems youtube-search-python is the culprit as it depends on the wrong httpx project (which is not the actual python library needed).

Something in the dependencies seems to be off. The package depends on httpx, and won't install without it, but the program can't find the package when it is run. python-httpx won't install with httpx installed, obvs. I think the issue may ultimately be in the youtube-search-python package (which has the direct dependency on httpx).

@matthewdavis The error you reported is very weird. I am not able to reproduce it on Python 3.10. Moreover, python-pip is not a direct dependency of the package and based on the error reported, it seems like it is being used in the build() of python-simber, however, it is not actually.

I am the developer/maintainer of python-simber and I am sure pip is not being used in the build process of simber.

Also, I just clean installed ytmdl on my machine without any issues.

Could you perhaps provide some more details about your system? Also, reporting an issue on GitHub would be a better idea since communicating there is way easier!

Please make python-pip a dependency.
